It’s that time of the week when we talk a little look at US Top 10 Movie Charts. Let’s talk about Star War more specifically Solo: A Star Wars Story which released in movie theaters around America over the weekend. It’s fair to day this is one film that has split opinion. One thing never in doubt was that it would take a consider amount of money at the box office, it is Star Wars after all.
That said whilst it did take over $84.4m it doesn’t come close to the last to big superhero films just out. Deadpool 2 for instance took over $125.5m whilst Avengers: Infinity War managed over $257.6m. I pretty sure Disney wanted more but considering all the negative press surrounding the film it’s done pretty well, I guess next week’s figures will tell just how well.
Many Star Wars fan don’t like the direction that Disney and Lucas Film are taking the franchise with many unhappy with The Last Jedi. Solo: A Star Wars Story has had a difficult time to with a change of director required bringing in Ron Howard to rescue a troubled production.
Let’s see how Solo: A Star Wars Story came out in come of the reviews.
Rotten Tomatoes gives a critic score of 70% whilst the Audience score is lower at 62%
